the perfusionist thing is a great deal. post bac cost a lot. vanderbilt has a perfusionist program that costs 28 grand for the 22 month program. if ur willing to move and u have a ms instead of bs ull get hired in perfusion. they also teach u ECMO and other cardiac devices rather than bypass alone so more likely to get a job than most other programs. plus i think perfusion is cool. u can get in with a 3.0 too so people can get experiance in healthcare a potential job rather than re taking classes and having FA run out and still have no job if they dont get in.
